Defensive tackle Robert Callaway, signed from the practice squad to help cover the loss of Josh Brent, said the game speed was not much different from practice, and he was glad to help the team.
“My brothers called on me. They needed me to play. I responded the best way I could do,” he said. “I went out there and did what was necessary to win. I helped spell Lissemore so he wasn’t dying the whole game. I feel like it was an accomplishment. The circumstances weren’t the best, but at the end of the day, Coach told us to respond, and we did.”
Callaway said he didn’t know at the time he was called up why he was being called up.
“I just knew that my team called on me, and I had to respond,” he said. “So I just came in and I did what I was supposed to do, which was play my box and stop the run.”
